Wrecsam's Ramada Hotel is playing host to a Tory party press conference this morning at which Nick Bourne (Welsh Tory Assembly leader) and Cheryl Gillan (Tory shadow Welsh Secretary) will apparently unveil their latest recruit.
Word on the streets* is that the Tories are about to welcome on board John Marek, a man who stood against Labour and won in 2003 on a left-wing ticket. Back then he argued that Labour had betrayed its roots and met Tommy Sheridan's Scottish Socialist Party to discuss policies. With Ron Davies he formed Forward Wales, a left party calling for a full parliament for Wales.
Given the promises made to Mohammed Asghar when he defected to the Tories last year - a prime position on the regional list plus the employment of his daughter - one wonders what the Tories are offering Marek?
A pop at his former colleague Lesley Griffiths for the Assembly seat next year seems the most obvious, but will the Tories locally be able to back this former left-winger?
Perhaps Bourne might like to ponder what he is creating with his extravagant promises to maverick defectors.
* Word on the streets last night was of another maverick politician close to Marek. But, as they say, a week is a long time in politics.
